* HilariousInHindsight: The game's title is pretty nonsensical in the context of the game's plot. ''Snake's Revenge''? What does Snake want revenge for?[[note]]The packaging attempts to explain that the title is in reference of Snake wanting revenge against Colonel Vermon [=CaTaffy=] for killing his two friends. In-game, this storyline is not featured at all.[[/note]] It's Big Boss who wants revenge. But then ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' came along and revealed that not only Snake is a clone of Big Boss, but Big Boss' original codename was actually Snake as well. It also features Big Boss/Snake using a knife, something that had only happened in this installment. In addition, ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' is about Venom Snake getting revenge on Cipher for destroying the original Mother Base. To top off, Venom Snake becomes a partial cyborg in this one, having his left arm amputated and replaced with a prosthetic.

* BrokenBase / ContestedSequel: Oh dear.
** To be fair, most younger gamers have found it an okay game, and much better than the first NES ''Metal Gear'' game. The main complaint most people have is it's almost a remake of the original [[UsefulNotes/{{MSX}} MSX2]] game, thus ItsTheSameNowItSucks. It's worth noting though, that this game did introduce some aspects that would turn up in later games, such as avoiding search lights.
*** Even the series director, Creator/HideoKojima has come out in defense of the game and its development staff, stating they were presented with an impossible task in making a sequel to his original game. Kojima himself has gone on to say that the game wasn't that bad and he thought it was faithful to the ''Metal Gear'' concept.

It also features Big Boss/Snake using a knife, something that had only happened in this installment.
** And now comes ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain,'' which is about Snake (Big Boss) getting revenge on Cipher for sabotaging the development of Metal Gear ZEKE and destroying his headquarters Mother Base. To top off, Big Boss becomes a partial cyborg in this one, having his left arm amputated and replaced with a prosthetic.
* {{Narm}}: It falls somewhere between HilariousInHindsight and SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, but the final boss is Big Boss who, upon defeat, [[NotEvenHuman transforms into an invincible giant purple robot]] and chases Snake down the halls [[IncendiaryExponent breathing fire]]. Anything we could put here would completely fail to describe how this actually feels to play.
** Nick's death is a fairly dramatic moment, but it's spoiled by miscolouring one pixel on his heaving back. As a result, instead of appearing to pant out his last words, he appears to have a long, firm sausage shaped object on his back that jiggles up and down like a wagged finger.
